Funnily enough, this one came to me shortly after i finished up the butterbeer tea from frank that i had. Now, i haven’t tried frank’s rootbeer float but THIS is easily a replacement for the butterbeer tea from him that i enjoyed. I’m looking forward to trying this one as a cold brew to see how that works. Stacy is still settling on steeping paramters, so for this attempt i went with 1tsp per 8oz and brewed for 5 mins. What i’m gifted with is a delicious cup of rootbeer tea! I even gave some to my other half who proclaimed that it was “not half bad…” glowing praise from him indeed :) I’ll have to try 1.5 tsp per 8oz next as i suspect that will bring out more of the “float” flavour. What i also really like about this version is that it’s not a black base. I need more honeybush/herbal/rooibos blends in my cupboard for the evenings that i’ve spent most of the day drinking a ton of caffeinated tea :) I think this one is a win stacy!

Is this new? I think I’ll have to stock up as I loved Butterbeer.

Excellent to hear about the Butterbeer comparison. I was hoping that would be the case.

Ooooo, I’d be too afraid to invest in a tea like this, risky indeed. I hear great things about Butiki, but I am super picky about flavors like this. I would also expect it to be a black tea base, which is interesting indeed. Is it an herbal base? It’s great that you liked it!

This is a honey bush base so it’s differs from the root beer versions I’ve had from 52 tea, which have been black when I’ve tried them. I’ve also tried some rooibos rootbeer blends that weren’t as delicious as this one. I want to try it a few other ways but I am digging this version a lot!

Crow – as long as butterbeer tastes like rootbeer to you, you should be good. Cause it just tastes like rootbeer to me :)

Cavo – it is….not up on the website yet but you CAN order it by asking Stacy heh

OMGsrsly

Aw man, I really should have ordered this. Stacy asked me if I wanted to add it to my order and I said I would order it next time :(

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
